Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Parkes, an Anglican priest who championed interfaith dialog between Christians and Jews, tried to warn the West of the real purpose of Hitler's "racial" policies. Richmond, who has been closely associated with Parkes's work for 20 years, concentrates on the remarkable work of a man who studied Judaism, was a socialist, founded the Council of Christians and Jews, and collected the books that began the million-volume Parkes Library, a major resource on Christian/Jewish relations. Parkes also managed to be slightly eccentric in an endearing way, a habit that apparently wore well with friends and better with detractors than one might expect on issues as volatile as his. That he was not welcome in all venues in his own time goes without saying. Chances are good he would not be well-received on the Big Hair Channel today, either. Distributed in the US by ISBS.

Synopsis:

James Parkes, Anglican priest and religious philosopher, cried out to an unheeding Church about the fate threatening the Jews of Europe. When it failed to respond in the measure he sought, he concentrated his energies on combating anti-Semitism in Christian teaching and reaching out in reconciliation to the Jews whom he believed Christianity had failed. This is the first full biography of a very colourful character.
